New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss his scheduled start on Tuesday, according to Yankees manager Aaron Boone following the Yankees 7-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Monday.
“As of now he is the only one,” Boone said (h/t ESPN).
“Definitely, it’s tough. It’s been a tough year. We got this news with Cole and definitely a low blow there,” Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez said, via an interpreter.
Cole, 30, is 10-6 with a 3.11 ERA in 21 starts this season for the Yankees.
